The Irish Sea and its coastal communities are directly impacted by climate change. CCAT aims to build adaptive capacity for climate change by improving knowledge flow and awareness of climate change impacts and adaptation for the Irish Sea and coastal communities. The project will develop and test shared digital and non-digital tools and learning resources for citizens of all ages to observe their environment, interpret their findings, and co-create new ways of doing things. CCAT will involve interactive games so that children and young people can understand how climate change is affecting their local area; communities in Dublin (Fingal) and Wales (Pembrokeshire) will be involved in collaborative planning exercises. CCAT will be delivered by a transdisciplinary team comprising universities, local and port authorities, and a civil society organisation. CCAT is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Ireland Wales Cooperation Programme 2014-2020.
